Home Again

The boys
Note the  cell phone  in Brock's hand  , think it is permanently attached LOL.

parents are back from their  2 week trip to Tahiti and Bora Bora.......
Finished up my   time  there with   a  taco supper  using tortilla shells

ready for baking

Brayden loved them   but not the overly crisp edges
 formed into cups , baked in oven,  used  these  for the  taco mixture holder rather than  the   hard taco shells.( the taco shells in the boxes hurt my mouth) These tortillas   were crisp on the edge but soft in bowl  area. A nice blend.
Heard and read about dump cakes  ;
don't know what took me so long but I finally tried one,  using  angel food cake mix and canned crushed pineapple. 

So good !  very nice with a scoop of ice cream. Will be trying  again...... seen a version with canned cherries..
Always seems like   over ripe bananas are everywhere ,   made blueberry banana muffins. Brayden loved them.......

Made a no knead  cranberry raisin focaccia.. from the LCBO Food and Drink magazine.. It  looks good! 
Too salty
but  must say the coarse salt was a bit too much for my taste . Plan on making it again and if  it is a success will post the recipe.

Think I am baked out.. Not! Enjoyed  the appreciative   Grandsons.

Your tacos sound delicious right about now. Wish I had the ingredients at home to make them tonight :-)
